Amusement arcade, a choice of eating places. It is quite a long pier with plenty of seating. Appeared to be busy and popular with all ages.

Travelled from Bristol to enjoy the pier and beach. I can imagine kids would just love this place with all the amusement rides and slot machines. I did the mirror maze and laser maze just to enjoy a different experience and while it wasn't earth shattering for me as an adult I see the appeal! Lots of memories to be... More

I have not enjoyed visiting the pier since the rebuild. It appears to have lost all character, is extremely noisy (in the covered area) and mostly overpriced.

The last time we visited Weston super Mare the pier was still undergoing restoration following its fire so we were keen to see what it was like, we were immediately put off by having to pay a £1 admission just to gain entry, once on the pier it was clear it had recently undergone refurbishment being very clean and tidy...

Took my disabled wife in wheelchair charged 1pound each I queried this as I thought as a carer I would not have to pay the attendant was very offhand they must be very hard up if they can't give a concession to disabled or just greedy money grabbers

It's the best pier I have ever been to, although the down side is you have to pay to get on it now, this does tend to keep me away from it on principle, but besides that, it is quite entertaining,wristbands can be bought if desired, should I recommend it ? Yes for holiday makers but no for locals because... More

Went to the pier in the afternoon, found the usual slots and coin drop machines there. There was nothing else open, cafe' or anything. We were then told that they close at 4pm and had to make a quick walk off the pier..
